Today (16 january 2017) is the 91st birth anniversary of O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). Like C Ramchandra, both his anniversaries fall in the month of January.

It is interesting to realise that the music of these two composers was built around the singing prowess of two singing sisters.

C Ramchandra composed his best music when he was associated with with Lata. Lata broke up with him in late 1950s and C Ramchandra was no longer the same music director.

O P Nayyar was one music director who made his mark without utilising the voice of Lata even once. But whose voice did he utilse instead ? Lata’s younger sister’s voice. The reliance of O P Nayyar on Asha Bhonsle’s voice was just as total as C Ramchandra’s was on Lata’s voice.

Asha Bhonsle and O P Nayyar managed to stick together till “Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Jaaye”(1973) and then they parted ways in the most bitter manner possible. Their parting of ways has been discussed by many people and it has been discussed even in this blog while discussing another song from this movie.

“Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye”(1973) had some superb songs rendered by Asha Bhonsle. Four of these songs have already been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye”(1973) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar, of course.

The song is picturised on Rekha, with Premnath and Sunil Dutt also visible in the picturisation.

Prakashchandra, who sent me the lyrics of this song alongwith other information about this song. He shares an interesting information about the picturisation of this song. He informs us that this song was picturised at Empire theatre, Jabalpur. It is a very interesting information indeed. “Empire Talkies”, located near Jabalpur Railway station on Army land was owned by Premnath. This talkies functioned as long as Premnath was alive but it got shut down after the death of Premnath. His sons did not bother to run the talkies. The building, after decades of disrepair collapsed a few years ago. When the sons of Premnath did not respond then the military administration retook possession of the structure.

There is a bus stand near the hall and it is known as empire talkies bus stop. I suppose this name will continue to be used even though the talkies has now collapsed. It is interesting to realise that Rekha, Sunil Dutt and Premnath had shot for the picturisation of this song some 45 years ago !

Here is this superb song from “Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye”(1973)- a movie that has so many stories associated with it.


Song-Dekho arre dilbar (Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye)(1973) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Atul ji,
My reference point is the credit sequences of the movie, where it has been written as
“We greatfully acknowledge the co-operation extended by
“The Police Department,
The Citizens & The Management
of
Empire Theatre,
Jabalpur,
during the shooting of this film”

Again the above song was picturised in a “glass set” for which the credit was given in the movie as
“Glass set designer ” as “Aga(/Agha) Jani Shirazi”
